Keepin’ it cool: Outdoor gear co. growing in the Treasure Valley

Located off I-84 in Nampa, Cordova Outdoors has been making coolers and drinkware since 2015. When owners Jason Galloway and Gentry Jensen started the company, they originally developed coolers for the commercial fishing industry.

But today, you’ll find Cordova’s gear in the hands of both hardcore outdoorsmen/women and leisure seeking Idahoans alike.

“The Treasure Valley is filled with people who love the outdoors,” Principal and founder Gentry Jensen said. “Whether that means a day-trip to the Sawtooth’s, a multi-day backpacking or hunting trip, a walk to the park, or a day spent fly fishing on the Boise River, we have gear that lets you get out there.”

Cordova’s product line ranges from hard coolers of six different sizes, to soft coolers, travel and adventure dry bags and totes, to premium stainless-steel drinkware and dog bowls.

“The great outdoors play such a large part of so many people’s lives here and we love to be a local company that can help folks enjoy their time in the outdoors even more,” Jensen said. “Our focus is to provide bold and casual adventurers with gear they can trust an expedition, a livelihood, even a life to.”

Today, Cordova Outdoors employs over 50 people at its Nampa production facility.

“Our dedicated team of employees design, build, and test our coolers to the highest standards using good ol’ fashioned American know-how and hard work,” Jensen said. “American manufacturing is not the cheapest, but we can control the process from start to finish right here in Idaho.”

In and around the Treasure Valley, Cordova products can be found at places like D&B Supply, Cabela’s and The Boise Co-Op. Products are also sold at the production facility in Nampa.
